Non-Student Application Form



We programme Autumn, Spring and Summer Seasons. The seasons are ten to twelve weeks long and are based around University of Cambridge terms.


The ADC Theatre auditorium has a capacity of 228 and usually hosts two shows a night during University Term, at 7.45pm and 11.00pm.  The Larkum Studio (capacity 40) and ADC Bar (capacity 50) can also be used for performances. We also programme the Corpus Playroom.

Hire Charges

Our venues are normally hired on a box office split, with an additional box office commission.
